Dental implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. They can also be used to secure removable dentures or for full-mouth tooth replacement. This technology consists of a titanium “tooth root” that is positioned into the upper and/or lower jaw and can be restored with a replacement tooth that looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth.
There is also no need to remove healthy tooth structure from adjacent teeth which is necessary with more traditional treatment options such as a bridge restoration. Dental implants can restore your smile and allow you to eat and speak with comfort and confidence.
